Texan beef brisket

This is an amazing recipe which uses a Texan barbecue recipe but doesn’t require sunny weather, basically its a slow cook beef dish using one of the cheapest cuts, brisket.  It’s also really simple which is an added bonus


Cooking time
5 hours at least

2kg of brisket
1 onion
3 garlic cloves
100 ml tomato ketchup
2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp salt
2 tsp tabasco
50 ml worcester sauce
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp of dry or fresh thyme
Juice of half a lemon
1 litre of beef stock
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp dijon mustard

First put the onion, garlic and the rest of the sauce mix into a blender and puree it.  Next up put the beef stock beef cubes into a roassting pan and add about a litre of water, mix until the cubes dissolve.  Put the meat in the stock and pour the sauce over the top to cover the meat, cover with tin foil and put in the oven for 4-5 hours, turning a couple of time.

Thats it… when it is ready take the meat out and let it rest for half an hour, for an amazing gravy simply add the juice from the pan and reduce by about half until it is about the same consistency of double cream

Serve with potatoes and veg
